Create And Edit User Roles

User Roles allow you to group users together and set Education Requirements that the users must have to perform their duties. Examples of User Roles include “EMT”, “EMT-P”, “Crew Chief” or “Fire Fighter”, “Officer”, “Driver”, etc.

Users can have multiple user roles such as “Paramedic” and “Crew Chief”.  This would allow you to have a set of requirements for all “Paramedics” and require additional items for “Crew Chiefs”.  When multiple user roles are present for a user, their stoplight color will be a combination of all requirements from all user roles.
